Best Presentation Award

Following the ICIT 2019 (International Conference on Interpretation and Translation) in Copenhagen, June 11 – 12th, I was awarded the Best Presentation Award for the presentation on “Think Aloud Processes and retrospective interviews in (signed language) interpreting studies: implications for researchers, educators and practitioners.”

My area of expertise is signed language interpreting and my research is situated on the intersection of (applied) linguistics, intercultural studies and language ideologies. I hold a MA in Linguistics and a MA in Interpreting. My PhD is a first exploration of which linguistic interpreting strategies Flemish Sign Language interpreters use and why. My postdoctoral research investigates how discourses and ideologies about deaf people and signed languages prevalent in both the majority society and in the Deaf communities influence the linguistic decisions signed language interpreters make in their actual practice. I am the secretary of the World Association of Sign Language Interpreters and the vice-president of Tenuto, an organisation offering continuous professional development for sign language interpreters.
